Hey there! Thanks for reading our coverage here at Backheeled.

We’re excited to unveil “TAKLD”, a new venture that will run alongside this site. Where Backheeled creates original American soccer stories, TAKLD curates the best stories from around the landscape.

Starting Tuesday, 10/4.

Introducing "TAKLD"

TAKLD is a newsletter and website that sends you the absolute best American soccer coverage from around the internet. We know you don’t have time to read every soccer article that gets published online. Or to listen to every podcast. Or to watch every video. So we’re cutting through the noise for you. 

TAKLD will send subscribers the best American soccer stories. No fuss. No frills. Just a list of the top must-read, listen, and watch soccer content floating around the internet.

You can subscribe to TAKLD for free to get two curated soccer stories sent right to your inbox four days per week. Or, you can become a premium member and get four curated stories, one mystery box, and much more sent to you every weekday. You’ll find the best of our coverage here at Backheeled included in TAKLD newsletters, but you’ll also find really great stuff from other outlets, podcasts, and channels in there, too.

We’re people who love soccer, just like you. We don’t just love soccer, though. We also love quality and convenience. So we built TAKLD to hang out right at the intersection of those three things: soccer, quality, and convenience.

And we’re very excited to get started.
